On course to welcome to a new gin

Eden Mill’s new Golf Gin goes on sale today (June 8).

ST ANDREWS-based distillery Eden Mill has teed up a new golf-inspired gin in time for summer.

Taking inspiration from the Old Course in St Andrews – the ‘home of golf’ – the spirit, which is encased in a green ‘jacket’ bottle that is designed to be reminiscent of the Masters Champions, is said to feature botanicals inspired by the Old Course, including seaweed, pine needles, gorse flower and heather.

The gin, which goes on sale today (June 8), is said to have received the seal of approval from Scottish European Tour golfer, Stephen Gallacher.

Paul Miller, co-founder of Eden Mill, said the new Golf Gin “is a spirit that essentially bottles the experience of golfing in St Andrews”.

“With earthy notes of the forest and an underlying tang of the sea, it’s rugged, real and – once tasted – will keep customers coming back for more.

“With both The Open Championship, The Scottish Open and the Seniors Open, which is taking place in St Andrews, right around the corner, there’s no better way for golf fans to immerse themselves in the action than with a glass of Eden Mill Golf Gin and tonic.”
